#ricp : O-RAN SMO and Radio plane Setup #ricp

Bassam Ballaji

In regard of your new release BRONZE, I'm following the step-by-step setup process to install all O-RAN components (non RT RIC / real RT RIC / ....) available in the link : https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/display/GS/Getting+Started 
So as a cloud approach :
I created an ubuntu 18.04 VM in Azure Cloud subscription where I deployed a Kubernetes platform as of the link : https://kubernetes.io/docs/setup/production-environment/tools/kubeadm/install-kubeadm/ 
Then, I deployed the SMO part (non RT RIC) according to the process : https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/display/GS/SMO+Installation 
So now, I'm targeting the radio plane deployment, I started with the Near RT RIC as of the process in this link :  https://wiki.o-ran-sc.org/display/GS/Near+Realtime+RIC+Installation?&#comments
But I have several questions :

  • Should I deploy the near RT RIC in the same VM as SMO, or in a different ubuntu 18.04 VM ?
  • I don't see any reference to the rest of radio plane components (O-CU / O-CU-CP / O-CU-UP / O-DU / O-RU) as installation packages, would you please share the setup procedure page ? And also I need to know if it's possible to setup all these components in the same ubuntu 18.04 VM ?
  • Finally, the interfaces : O1, A1, E2 are established by default between components or is there a particular procedure for this ?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
